Yeah I got the grey death.

Tapped out hole, stud went in fully, got head on and torqued.

Gasket came in today also. I can get pics if you guys want.

I would defiantly like to see some detail pics of the gasket. I plan on installing one in the spring. Debating if I should freshen it up too? Compression is around 360.

I hit a deer a couple of weeks ago. It rolled length wise under the truck. It put a shallow dent in the bottom of the oil pan and of course it's dripping now by the corner where the pan transitions from the block to the rear main bearing. I walked back to check it and it was messed up bad. I didn't even want to take the outer back straps after I saw it. I built a deer deflector for my truck, the front is fine.

Here in NE Wisconsin, it's not uncommon to see 20 to 50 deer in a field. NO BS!

I've hit 2 deer this year. One died, one didn't. My way to solve the deer damaging the bumper issue, paid for by insurance.



And I wouldn't be using a gasket for permanent if it were my motor. Magnum wants to run the engine on a stand IIRC, and then check and do a hot torque. Using the gasket for the initial run then using gray death, same thing I'd do if I were doing what he is. It's not worth having the gasket leak in 50k miles or so and having to pull the motor again.

Do what works for you.

For me, I prefer things to not get damaged in the first place. I'm finished with that discussion.

As for grey RTV, I don't believe it's the only or best way to seal an oil pan. If you don't
agree? That is fine. I didn't ask for anyone's blessing or approval. I do know that speed
and low coast are the driving forces on an assembly line, not the best quality.

I'm going to TRY the gasket because of it's resiliency. Once again, I'm not looking for
approval. I'm just sharing a different course of action and some detailed pics of the
gasket would be great.

I've been in your shoes, and unless you're trying to reseal this in the truck, I think you will be disappointed. Been there, done that.

we had a vendor that used to sell the moroso gasket for a 7.3 oil pan and he quit selling it due to its failure rate.. just saying..

international/motorcraft gray death is all I would use..

live life full throttle

god bless america and the farmer who feeds your fat ass

I see.

I'll see how it fits and does on engine stand.

Well, I have until spring or when it warms up here in Wisconsin before I will make a finale
decision. Mag Pd, I would appreciate any feedback you could provide on the gasket.

I will stop derailing now.

There are brass spacers around the boat holes to keep from crushing the gasket but don't how it will seal everything else up.

When I used the moroso gasket it was sliding off the sealing surface on the front of the pan.
I ended up having to using Ford grey rtv. I waited for it to get tacky and then torqued it down to spec. It didn't leak but I essentially had to glue the gasket to the block and the pan.
